We wanted to take the time and thank you as a team for supporting us this week during our Fall Share Days. Many of you gave donations that showed us you believe in what we are doing and each and every one of us is touched by that. Because of you, we are able to minister during times of need like our recent deployment to Port Arthur along with Austin Disaster Relief Network, Christ Together and ABBA.
Last weekend, our team came together for “Love Port Arthur” Mission Day. We wanted to show God’s love to people who have felt forgotten after the recent devastation of Hurricane Harvey. The Lord tugged on the hearts of 1,200+ people from the Greater Austin Area to go and serve by providing cleaning supplies, goods, clothing and food as well as cleaning and organizing with FEMA to help survivors begin to rebuild.
Over 13,000 people were served in Port Arthur and prayed with individually. H-E-B fed all the volunteers and people who sought help in Port Arthur with all three meals of breakfast, lunch and dinner. We are so touched to see how God orchestrated this together to love on Port Arthur where they estimate 80% of the community has been affected. We saw this directly with over 500 people living in tents and apartment buildings housing thousands having to close down due to mold.
Please continue to prayer over Port Arthur and all of the other cities damaged by the hurricane.
